David, Jiří / From the cycle Kafka
mixed technique, canvas, wood, 255×165 cm
purchased in 2019 with support from the Czech Republic Ministry of Culture
This acquisition from the cycle Kafka is an important example of postmodern art which mixes media and combines different materials. It reflects the early phase of Jiří David’s career, yet it already bears the traces of approaches that would later become typical of his work – the integration of traditional media (in this case represented by canvas and hung images), technical information and a plastic object.
